I've been searching
For a pot of gold
Like the kind you find
At the end of the rainbow

I've been dreaming
Thought it was in vain
Ah, but now you're here
Can't believe that you're back again

Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win (I'm gonna win)
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow
As long as you follow

I've been wandering
Gone away too far
But the road was rough
To get back where you are

And the sun went down
Never seem to rise
Ah, but now you're here
With the light shining in your eyes

Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow

Yes, I can live today
If you give me tomorrow
As long as you follow

Now I know I can't lose
As long as you follow
I'm gonna win
I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow

Yes, I can live today
If you give me tomorrow
As long as you follow

As long as you follow
As long as you follow
As long as you follow
As long as you follow
As long as you follow

    I see this as a love song, definitely. I'm just not 100% on whether it's a "New found love" or a "we've had our problems, but now you're back, and i know we can get through anything" kind of love. My personal relationship at the time I really came into this song more fit the second description, and it really fits the two of us perfectly.

    It describes a time in my life and the way the person i was with made me feel like we could make it all ok "Now I know I can't lose As long as you follow I'm gonna win I'm gonna beg, steal, or borrow Yes, I can live today If you give me tomorrow As long as you follow" I wish I could grab those moments back and just hold on.

    Such a sweet song. I can't think of a better song to represent everlasting love. It's one of my favorite Fleetwood Mac songs.

    My Opinion
    would make an awesome wedding song too (first dance or reception) basically esp telling the other person "we can do this as long as we are together and in Love"

@Kahiara Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.
